Southern Mississippi offers explorers an unforgettable experience along miles of beaches, rivers, creeks, and bayous.
There are currently seven Blueways, or water trails, that have been mapped out for recreational canoers and kayakers. Other water ways listed here are the perfect to create your own adventure. Don’t forget to bring the sunscreen!
The Heritage Area has developed a Blueways Design Guide for the purposes of development and management of the beautiful water trails along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It is meant to be a unified effort for marketing and consistency to increase usage by locals and visitors. This guide was developed by Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain and unabridged Architecture with the help of the Blueways Committee. This effort is part of the Nature-based Tourism Plan for Coastal Mississippi 2016. If your blueway planning group is interested in being a part of the program, contact Heritage@dmr.ms.gov or call 228-523-4075. Click here to download a copy of the guide.
